Since my last post about consistency, I haven't written a thing. I feel that I may be rebelling against myself in some way. I'm not sure what is up.
I had so much to write about in the last few weeks and some of that will be popping up in regular posts on this site. Like our trip to Hawaii, San Diego and Los Angeles. Our fun summer and all of the surf Sawyer has been doing.
We just got back last Tuesday and I have been going through our photos and trying to remember the trip. We did so much.
I took photos everywhere. I even updated my IG story every once in awhile. But, I didn't write.
Vacation in Hawaii was a bit weird. I woke up early every day and had time on my computer but I actually had to finish up some work projects and so I was busy doing that.
I woke up early and worked.
While on vacation.
I didn't like it at all. I will never schedule a vacation like this again.
I thought it would be great but it was awful. I never felt like I could fully relax because work was at the back of my mind. I wanted to just turn it off but it always seemed to be there.
The kids would have to wait for me to finish a conference call before we could go play and with the time difference, it meant I wasn't ready to leave the house until noon or later.
Also, our main goal was for Sawyer to surf everyday so that involved a lot of coordination between dropping him off at the beach and picking him up. He had a great time surfing and I loved that he had so much time to do it.
My plan was to hike everyday but that didn't happen. I got one good hike in and a couple of other just so-so hikes. I mean, the scenery was beautiful but they weren't long enough. I needed more time in the woods.
I don't mean to complain, the trip was amazing and beautiful and fun. I just wish I would have set a bit more clear about my expectations of the trip with the kids. I wish I would have carved out more time for my hikes. I did love the few hikes that we did get to do.....especially one that I hadn't done since before I had kids.
I have been blogging more. I put together an editorial calendar and have been working hard to make sure I stick to it.
I am at the point that I think I am ready to fully move on from one business and begin another. It will be a big step for Aaron to fully take over our paddleboard business but I think it is time. This weekend we will need to have some big discussions about that. I don't even know where to begin with this.
The kids started back to school today. Sawyer is heading into 9th grade and Nova into 7th. Both of them are staying at the same school as last year but the hours are changing. This morning we had to get up at 5:30 am and on the road for school by 6:30 am. Right now I am wondering how long I can keep up with this schedule. I realize we will get used to it but today I am not loving this. I can only imagine how they must feel.
Happy Monday everyone! Hope your week is amazing.
